The History and Legends Behind Valentine's Day

Every February we celebrate Valentine's Day by giving flowers, candy and cards to those we love. We do this in honor of Saint Valentine. You may be wondering, "Who is St. Valentine"?

 Legend says, there was an Emperor at that time by the name of Claudius II. Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those that were married and therefore outlawed marriage for young men in hopes of building a stronger military base. Supposedly, St. Valentine a priest at the time in Rome, decided this decree just unfair and chose to marry young couples secretly. When Emperor Claudius II found out about Valentine's actions he had him put to death.

 

Another legend has it that Valentine was an imprisoned man who fell in love with his jailor's daughter. Before he was put to death he sent the first 'valentine' himself when he wrote her a letter and signed it 'Your Valentine', words still used on cards today.

The History of Conversation Hearts

In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Queen Gertrude offers the now-loved sentiment “Sweets to the Sweet.” Perhaps this is the origin of the tradition of giving candy to a loved one. Early American colonists made homemade candies with love notes scratched on the surface for Valentine’s Day. New England Confectionary Company (NECCO) expanded upon the colonists’ idea and created the conversation heart in the mid-1800s.
